Down by the Riverside


It's been a while since I've posted here. Just to play some catch up, I'll be posting some of our songs from the last year or two. This one is from yesterday.

All Music Sunday


We had an all music Sunday yesterday at church. Here are just a few snippets from the day. A wonderful time was had by most, I think.

Pentecost and Pride


When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place.
Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and
filled the whole house where they were sitting.

They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire
that separated and came to rest on each of them.

All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and
began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them...

They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship,
to the breaking of bread and to prayer.


Everyone was filled with awe at the many
wonders and signs performed by the apostles.


All the believers were together and
had everything in common.


They sold property and possessions
to give to anyone who had need.

Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts.

They broke bread in their homes and
ate together with glad and sincere hearts,

praising God and
enjoying the favor of all the people.

And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.

Every Star in the Sky Above


 
We began Lent this year (where we spent time thinking about Lights, Stars and Lengthening Days) with this song, Every Star in the Sky Above. We wrote the lyrics especially for this Lent, borrowing from a lovely tune by Glenn Kaiser (worth checking out, too - Long Way from Home).

The song here is performed by David Dillard, Roger Thomas, Jon Mueller and Dan Trabue, featuring art from Dan Trabue.

Lord of the Starfields

 


It's been a while since we've updated anything from church... Covid's taken a bite out of our time together. But we were back together for Easter this year, and we had this wonderful special music from Kate, Amos and Sophia: Lord of the Starfields, a song by Bruce Cockburn.

Happy Easter From Jeff St... (Sort Of...)

We didn't meet in person this year at Jeff St, due to the Covid quarantine situation. However, this is a song we sing every year at our Easter service and so, we've found a way to march together, while marching apart. It's a song that rose from the anti-Apartheid movement in South Africa, a protest against oppression and in solidarity with the people, in the light of the God of Justice.

We are marching in the light of God,
We are marching in the light of God.
(Repeat)
We are marching, marching,
We are marching, marching,
We are marching in the light of God.
